    The total cost for Company X to produce a batch of
    tools is $10,000 plus $3 per tool. Each tool sells for
    $8. The gross profi t earned from producing and selling
    these tools is the total income from sales minus the
    total production cost. If a batch of 20,000 tools is
    produced and sold, then Company X’s gross profi t per
    tool is
    (A) $3.00
    (B) $3.75
    (C) $4.50
    (D) $5.00
    (E) $5.50

    No need to pick numbers here. Can be done directly.

    Cost to produce a batch of 20,000 tools = $10,000 + $3(20,000) = $70,000
    Selling price for 20,000 tools = $8(20,000) = $160,000
    Gross profit earned = $160,000 - $70,000 = $90,000
    Therefore, gross profit per tool = $90,000/ 20,000 = $4.50

    The correct answer is (C).
